The ACUSAfrica network aims to advance Critical University Studies across Africa in dialogue with scholarship from the global South. Underpinning our work is the endeavour to find ‘other’ ways to study universities that are capable of thinking plural forms of emancipatory higher education imaginations and futures.


The 2022 Colloquium will locate the network’s formative questions within the context of building reflexive solidarities within the higher education sector on the African continent and beyond. Against this backdrop and considering the speed at which the notions of digital governance and techno-rationality are achieving hegemony in the sector, the colloquium will focus on how these kinds of solidarities may be advanced.


The colloquium invites provocations in various formats for the network to engage with these challenges, whilst at the same time developing the network as a community of practice.
